I was able to purchase mine on ebay.  Just a warning that you will need to purchase a slightly larger envelope to mail these in, or else you will have a hard time stuffing them in.  I learned the hard way.

Here’s a tutorial with round doilies: http://www.daydreamlily.com/2010/04/doily-envelops.html

Maybe try a smaller doily so it doesn’t have as much folding on the size.  I don’t remember what size my doilies were, because it’s been two years since my wedding.  I know I ordered whatever Martha Stewart suggested for a A7 card.  I did purchase them on ebay.

Thought I would include a photo of my finished invites for reference.

@MsquareM:  Have you checked with your Post Office to see if those finished dloily envelopes are acceptable? They seem to have high potential for getting  caught in any automatic sorting equipment.

@julies1949:  I think she is planning to use them as an inner envelope and will be using another envelope outside to mail them.
